Why is the water from my tap cloudy?

Cloudy water coming from your tap may look harmful or unappetizing, but it isn’t bad for you. Cloudy water is just a result of air in your water supply. You may notice this occurs more frequently during the winter than any other time of the year. The reason for this is because as the cold water travels to your home, it begins to warm up. Cold water holds more air particles, creating a cloudy appearance as it warms and is subject to pressure.

If you’re still concerned about the quality of your water, it’s easy to have it tested without paying a professional to do. Purchase a water testing kit today by visiting a local retail store or home supply store.
